VEHICLE CHASE IN PORT HURON ENDS IN TRAGEDY


A 48-year old Marysville resident is dead following a group motorcycle chase over a meat sale dispute.  The accident happened in the 22-hundred block of Military when the victim apparently struck an vehicle unrelated to the chase and hit a sign.  He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say initial reports indicate a confrontation developed over the sale of meat at the Devils Diciples  clubhouse.  Several motorcycle riders gave chase to the van ending in the crash along Military Street at about 6:30 p.m. Speeds were said to approach 90-miles per hour during the chase.  The crash scene, just north of the Seaway Terminal, was cause for the roadway to be closed down for several hours last night. Investigations continue.
